I would get the best glass you can afford. dont cheat yourself with a cheap zoom. I am not to familiar with nikon lens, if money is a problem(usually is) you can go with sigma EX being their pro brand.

IMHO, I would stick with the Nikkor lens for your D70. Not to put down any other manufactures, I just think that sticking with Nikon lens on the Nikon camera is the best bet.

Go ahead and get the D70 Outfit and you will have the 18-70 lens. Then get the 70-300 when you can. Virtually all Nikon lens will work on the D70. Some will not have full functionality, but they all will work.

Well I might have done something a little extraordinary. I bought the D70 without the kit lens. I preferred a faster 2.8 across the board. Before hand I did some research with the affordable Tamaron 28-75 2.8. And that was my substitute for the kit lens. I wouldnt straight up advice that, but the lens is beautiful. To me, much more versatile to what I do then the kit lens.
